Azad expels three leaders from DAP

JAMMU — Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday expelled three top leaders – former ministers Tara Chand and Manohar Lal and former legislator Balwan Singh – from his Democratic Azad Party (DAP) for anti-party activities.

An order for their expulsion with immediate effect was issued by DAP general secretary R S Chib.

“They were expelled for anti-party activities. The chairman (Azad) was convinced that they were not required in party as they were involved in anti-party activities,” Chib told PTI.

DAP chairman Azad has made several appointments in the party over the past two days – nearly three months after its launch in Jammu. — (PTI)
